H&S and procurement
Alcohol-based hand sanitisers pose a threat to health and safety. They are flammable, poisonous if swallowed, dangerous to the eyes and can cause painful skin irritation. Product quality and integrity is sometimes in doubt, as with the major recall of hand sanitiser in Ireland.
There are also concerns about the manufacturing supply chain, especially in child labour, modern slavery and deforestation. These were contained in a report by Verisk Maplecroft as covered in Supply Management.
Despite the risks, many people believe that alcohol-based products are the only ones they are allowed to use. This is simply not true. There are trusted alternatives to alcohol-based hand sanitisers, as used by Boots the Chemist, Rentokil Initial plc and the NHS.
